Hello! Welcome to my profile and I look forward to meeting you. I work with individuals in the Gilbert, Chandler, and Queen Creek areas.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Gilbert, AZ
The basis of my therapeutic approach revolves around the individual seeking services and what their wants and needs are. I believe in meeting the client where he/she/they are at and working on goal development based on the individual's goals.
I frequently use CBT techniques to address a variety of concerns - especially in relation to anxiety, panic, and behavior change.
If you are looking to make major changes in your life but feel uncertain about your direction, or method, or steps to take, I can assist you with personality assessments, values inventories or goal setting. If you find that you can get started on self development goals but have difficulty staying consistent, I can help. I absolutely LOVE working with individuals who thrive with the help of a trusted, neutral, personal cheerleader!
I have been in a stepmom role for more than 18 years and I've learned a lot along the way. I have 3 stepkids and 2 biological children, and I understand from a very personal perspective the challenges that blended families face on a daily basis. In therapy, I use my personal experiences combined with my clinical education and expertise to help clients find understanding, empathy, and solutions that work for their families.
Suffering from anxiety and/or panic can be exhausting, upsetting, and can affect many areas of a person's life. The good news, is that these are both problems which can be treated effectively in counseling. I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques as well as compassion and targeted interventions to address individual needs. Through a dynamic and collaborative approach, we work together to identify areas for improvement, and effective strategies to help you gain freedom from anxiety.
